  • Turbo-Sticks SAPP is formulated to improve drilling efficiency and bit life.

  • The paper tube dissolves rapidly, releasing the product into the drilling fluid. Shearing occurs at the bit, providing a very effective hole sweep.

  • Encapsulated drill cuttings can be observed at the shale shaker to determine the effectiveness of the polymer treatment.

  • Reduces the surface tension of the drilling fluids and the wetting of solids reduces bit balling when drilling into clay-type formations.

  • Improves ROP by removing drill cuttings buildup around the bit and BHA.

  • Reduces hole conditioning time and pull back while tripping.
